The Little Cook Company has a wonderful range of kitchen utensils for children aged 3 – 8 years, so they can enjoy baking and get creative.
We’ve been making gingerbread biscuits today, it was such fun for Mum and children alike! The cutters are so versatile and lend themselves to different themes. We made some Halloween biscuits, but have used them for festive Christmas baking before. Here are a few ideas! Here we have a selection of ghosts, Dracula, pumpkins, zombies, spiders, webs and skeletons! Do show us your creations on Instagram (@ryedalemumbler) and or Ryedale & The Coast Mumbler Chat Group
I used a simple gingerbread recipe:
10oz self raising flour 3 tsp ground ginger 3 tsp bicarbonate of soda 3 tbs golden syrup 3oz margarine or stork 5oz soft sugar 1 egg
Sift the flour bicarbonate of soda and ginger together
Warm syrup, margarine and sugar
Stir in the egg
Bring together into a workable dough
Roll out and cut to shape
Place on baking tray covered with greaseproof paper
Cook at 180 degrees Celsius for approx. 15 mins or until light brown.
Allow to cool and place on wire rack
Decorate as you wish.
